A long term photography project of mine is taking portraits of fly fishing guides both domestically and internationally. Below are portraits of guides at Limay River Lodge in Argentina. All of these guides I would gladly fish with any day. They all work together, are exceptionally knowledgeable of their craft and location and are fun to be with.
They are part of the team at Limay River Lodge and can be found grating cheese for the chef prior to dinner, drinking matte outside the dining room in the morning or hanging with any of the guests before or after fishing talking about any number of things in Spanish and or English.
Guides can make or break any lodge or shop or outfitting service. All five of the guides below I would recommend to anyone wanting to fish in Argentina.
In fact, I am working on hosting a group of anglers to Patagonia next year and if you are interested in joining me at Limay River Lodge shoot me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
I am hoping to dovetail a hosted trip to Argentine Patagonia (Limay River Lodge) with Chilean Patagonia (Los Torreones Lodge). Seeing both sides of the Andes is really quite striking. I spent three weeks last year with the Salas family at Los Torreones Lodge, located on the Simpson River, and they blew me away with their work ethic and kindness. It's also an incredible place and fishery--think 3x and large Parachute Adams. See the last issue of Anglers Journal for a feature story I wrote and shot on Pancho Salas and his family owned Los Torreones Lodge.
Feel free to contact me if this is a trip you are interested in.
